The week before Valentine's Day, we reached out to VSSC teams & players on social media and out at the games for their stories of #VSSCLOVE. The response has been incredible, and we've compiled all the stories below! We hope they give you a smile, and show how friends, family and yes, even love can all be enhanced through sport.
Do you have a story to share with us?
We love receiving stories and profiles of teams, friends, couples and more throughout the year. You may even be featured on our social media or bi-weekly Chalkboard!
A love letter from Rachel to her basketball team, Sons of Michael Jordan!
"I love my team because I get to play basketball with my brother and sister. We grew up playing so it’s so much fun to be on the same team. Also getting to play with friends and people who we grew up in the basketball community with. My whole team is an extended family to me! Love them so much!"
Meet Kelly & Peter, volleyball players with VSSC!
They're dating and have been playing with the VSSC for 2.5 years.
They met at a softball tournament about three years ago, and started dating only six months ago. They play both softball and volleyball, and love playing against fun teams and having great rallies!
Meet Derek and Jeff!
They've been playing with the VSSC on and off for 5 years and are currently playing volleyball with the club. They met 14 years ago working a mall job in their hometown of Prince George, and began dating a year later.
They now live in a tiny house together with their golden retriever and two cats! They love the affordability and customization that comes with tiny house living, but they admit that it sometimes feels like a "funny farm" with all the pets sharing the space!
Eva and Shelby play for the volleyball team “Safe Sets”!
They’ve been friends since elementary school, so roughly 15 years. They’ve also been playing volleyball together for their schools and competitively throughout that time period. Thanks to VSSC they’re able to continue to play the game they love with a friend they love!
At VSSC we love to see you smile! Craig and Katherine (happily married) are in their first season of futsal and are having a great time. Thanks for always sharing those smiles with us!
